But Linus himself has stated very recently (at
Australia) that "while
Linux is well deep into the server space and market, the home desktop
will take 5 to 10 years to be equally competitive with other
[since I was quoting I couldn't change that to GNU/Linux]
Linus may be right. `Linux' might not be ready for the desktop.
But the GNU/Linux operating system is. And people like my mother and
sister (I have no brothers) do use it.
Next time anybody tells you that `Linux' is not ready for desk top,
ask him to use GNOME, which is part of the GNU project, or KDE,
another equally free and user friendly desktop.
